    E.O.W. Round #233: The Black Church

    E.O.W. Round #233: The Black Church

    TOPIC: The Black Church
    suggested by Artanas


    The word 'black' can mean a combination of things. It could be a description of a characteristic of a church, for instance the color or the architectural style. It could be the gloomy, melancholic mood, or maybe a church was burnt down or hit by an artillery shell and its foundation is scorched with a dark hue. Is it a mysterious or haunted location? Take it any direction you want, and make sure to have a back story that reveals why it's known as "The Black Church." Thanks to Artanas for the topic suggestion.

    Brief:
    1. Design an environment that adheres to the topic/theme.
    2. You must post at least once in this W.I.P. thread to be included in the finals thread for the voting poll.
    3. Include a back story for your church!

    Deadline: July 2, 2014

    Congrats to OverlordGunnar for winning EOW #231!

    Post your final entries in the "FINAL BURNING" thread which I will post a week or so before the due date. If you need more time to get your finals in, let me know and I'll extend the deadline.

    Awesome topic!

    I hope I'm allowed to go out of the ballpark with this.

    I.E:

    The Black Church... Of Comedy!

    That's right. Black Comedy. I'm taking it there.

    Will show sketches soon.

    Here's a reference pic I plan to use. Name:  chrism-mass_overall.jpg

    the dwarfs' coal church

    The dwarfs' coal church
    Made entirely of coal, this church was sculpted from one solid block that is part of the mine. Was made for the dwarfs can pray before entering the, full of terrible monsters, dark coal church.

    My idea went full on Lovecraft...it's black because of the soot from the people the cultists burn. Crazy cyclopean church, with a bonfire out front.

    Yes, I think I'd like to try this one! Here's an idea that I may develop:

    I'm going to try my hand at this, the very least is that I can learn. Just don't know if I'll be able to finish this in time, but am going to put in an effort.

    So first my EoW entry: Black church.

    I went for a church within a spaceship and went on the assumption that they would use diffuse lightning of the stars to illuminate the church as it would illustrate the creation of God. Hence the black church.

    The picture quality is bad (I've drawn it out and still need to add details (had to take a picture with my phone)), but at least it gives an idea of where I'm at. Next step is painting in the galaxy on the windows and then a whole lot of dark tones to suggest the shapes of all the material drawn so far.

    Hello
    Well I really need to wotk on doing environments so
    Here are my sketches so far
    The idea is that its an abandoned old church
    I will add more destruction to the church so that it goes with the ruins surrounding it, but first I wanted to get the overall shapes down
    E.O.W. Round #233: The Black Church
    E.O.W. Round #233: The Black Church

    But now that I think about it, it doesn't really convey the idea of a "black church" I'll still finish it though because I really need the practice :/
